And Sunday didn’t disappoint ….

What a great relief after a week of heavy rains….Sunday did turn out to be sunny. Just great to be free to enjoy a leisurely walk even if there was still a cold wind.

The low sun brought out lots of winters colours thru the bare woodland and scrub…will not be long before the buds that are slowly swelling will burst from their winter quarters and herald the start of another spring…though I suspect there will still be some real winter days yet to come.
